I travelled to Kenya for the first time last week with my son. We stayed in Mombasa for what was supposed to be three nights but ended up staying an extra night due to the wonderful hospitality of Backpackers Nirvana staff.
The host was very warm and welcoming and catered to all our requests immediately. She gave us information about all the local sightseeing places and was spot on. I am, as I write, trying to book again for another visit to Mombasa as this place really is home away from home for us now.
The accommodation is clean and has a very cosy atmosphere. The staff are extremely polite and always greet you with a smile! The prices are extremely reasonable too considering the proximity to the beach (only a two minute walk)!! I cannot reccommend this place enough ... and we cannot wait to return!
Backpackers Nirvana is definately topnotch!!
